As a postscript, my children have begun piano lessons and I have started playing again. This time it is for me.

Regarding Unschooling, from time to time I doubt my ability to Unschool. I don't know if it has to do with seeing other kids that are in other activites: Girl Scouts (homeschooled) etc or just doubting that I am providing enough educational stimulation for my kids.

As a family, emotionally we are doing well. We have been through more than we have cared to, and our life is finally at a place where we can relax.
